Do Things That Feel Sexual to You
What feels sexual to the two of you? What usually acts as non-sexual foreplay? Is it getting dressed up for a fancy dinner? Is it experiencing a new hobby together? Is it cuddling up on the couch with a movie you haven't seen? Whatever it is, try to fit it into your vacation. You can bring formal clothes to go out to dinner at a brand-new restaurant. You can try skydiving, pottery painting, scuba diving, Segway tours and more together. You can rent a DVD and get delivery from that local place everyone raves about. Doing fun things that tend to arouse you will help you feel more rejuvenated, and it'll keep your relationship - and your sexual relationship - closer to the front of both of your minds.
Scope Out Your Living Space
Part of the enjoyment of staying in a new place is the excitement of, well, staying in a new place! You can take this to a sexual level as well. Does your place have a sturdy, large table that would be good for sex? Well, your hotel might! Does your hotel have a bed of a different height? Well, this might be a good time to try a new type of standing sex position! What about the couch? The kitchen counters? Maybe your hotel even has a spacious shower or dual shower heads? Whatever the case, scoping the place out with a sexual mindset will help the two of you be more excited for sexual activity - and more likely to carve out a bit of time to enjoy each other. Just be careful of safety considerations...and leave furniture and your vacation home in the same condition as when you arrived.

Scope Out a Sex Toy Store
If you're going to a larger city, there's no reason you can't scope out a local sex toy store. Most larger cities have one (or more!) sex toy stores to visit. If you've never been in a sex-positive store, try to find one of those - you'll be in for a huge treat! Shopping together is a fun and sexy way to enjoy a new city.
Look for a BDSM Club
Are you of the kinky variety? A lot of BDSM groups offer out-of-towner clauses for entrance into their play parties - especially if you're active in your local kink group back home. Some groups may ask for a recommendation from your current group's leadership, and others may just allow out-of-towners to access to their play parties as long as they agree to show up early for a little chat before the event begins. If you like the idea of spending an evening at a new club, finding the local BDSM scene might be a great choice. Just remember to bring some toys to play with - or plan on a minimal-equipment scene if you want to play!
Don't Over-Schedule Yourself
It can be hard to feel sexual intimacy (even at home!) if you're constantly scurrying around to hit every item on your to-do list. Most people's brains have a hard time kicking back into "Let's enjoy ourselves!" when there are still six more things on the docket for the day. When you're going on vacation, attempt to limit the temptation to see everything there is to see. Yes, you could argue that you can always have sex when you get back home and you can't see these wonderful things when you're back home. But, if you're reading this article, it's clear that maintaining your sexual connection while you're on a trip is important to you. If you're someone who feels much more comfortable scheduling every minute of every day, there's a simple solution for you: schedule in a time for the two of you to have sex. Then, use the tips above to ensure you check it off the day's to-do list.
